Welcome to the Honours Program
Do you want to specialise? Take your studies and ambition to a higher level.
When you have completed the Honours Program, you will have:
acquired high level communication and technical skills
developed a high degree of self confidence and personal satisfaction by completing a significant piece of work
contributed to a research program in the laboratory of your supervisor and maybe even made some "world first" discoveries
given yourself the best chance for future employment or entry to the graduate research program.
we have established a program with Oxford University (UK), designed to promote learning in the form of special lectures and Honours scholarships for students in the biomedical sciences, the SBMS-Oxford Honours Scholarships. Three scholarships have already been awarded in 2015, however there are opportunities for further awards.
Applying for the Honours Program
- Check out the Honours Research Projects page or view our staff profile research pages to find your research interest. Please then make contact with the prospective advisor. Once there is agreement of superivision, you can then apply to enrol in the Honours program.
- You should then download the Honours program Application Form and submit the completed form to the Honours Administration Officer, Kirsten Skinner, at the School of Biomedical Sciences located in Room 306B, Skerman Building (#65), firstname.lastname@example.org
- BSc Honours applicants will also be required to complete the UQ Online Application Form, in addition to the Honours Application form.
The School requires a satisfactory background in Level 2 and 3 relevant courses. For BSc graduates, the minimum requirement is a GPA of at least 4.5 in the most relevant 8 units of third level (or advanced) study and an overall GPA of 4 (minimum) for the BSc degree. In some circumstances, and subject to the approval of the Head of School and Executive Dean, BSc graduates who do not fulfil the above requirements may be permitted to enter the Honours program if they have a high GPA in other science courses and if their proposed project fits well with their background. Bachelor of Biomedical Science students can check their eligibility to enrol in honours by reading the program rules and requirements here.
